SimBuilder IADS provides generic, unclassified IADS entities that are data-driven. It is an expansion of the existing SimBuilder Library that is used to create the weapon models and self-protection countermeasures and includes an add-on to the SimBuilder Graphical User Interface (GUI). This allows air combat ranges operations personnel to create or modify data sets of the IADS entities in the form of Command Posts, Air Defense Sites, EW Sites, Threat Systems, and EW Search Radar Systems. The simulated forces are then used in a scenario that can be friendly, neutral, or hostile in nature and can be assigned with varying levels of competence. The simulated forces can be coordinated through simulated command and control networks that can also be set up with varying levels of complexity and competence. SimBuilder IADS supports a wide range of ECM techniques including chaff, self-protection jamming, and stand-off jamming, each configurable through unclassified parameters. The availability of different network structures, modes of operation, force affiliation, rules of engagement, and time delays allow networks to be configured to represent virtually any geopolitical situation.

FAAC created two Integrated Air Defense Systems (IADS) products to meet the needs of our customers. SimBuilder™ IADS follows the unclassified data-driven mold successfully used for the SimBuilder weapons simulations. The second IADS product, ECEController™, builds on FAAC success in the Tactical Air Crew Training System / Air Combat Training System (TACTS/ACTS) ranges.
